After backpacking extensively, playing drums for the band Genesis and working on building sites, Chris had his epiphany moment whilst working on a sheep farm in Surrey. Farming was his dream destiny and he spent some time running a sheep farm in Sussex. On meeting the founder of Rough Guides at a party, his path took a new turn and he began a stint as a travel guidebook writer. Almost in full circle, he eventually moved to a remote farm in the Alpujarras, south of Granada in Spain with his wife Ana where he still lives today. He used his experiences of working the land, shearing sheep and living remotely to write a book called Driving Over Lemons which has been a huge success, and many other titles followed on.read full interview
